For sale is a 1997 Gibson Flying V ‘67 Reissue in Cherry, a true relic of rock 'n' roll history. This guitar, accompanied by a non-original hard-shell case, carries the battle scars and stories of countless gigs. Its well-worn exterior, adorned with scratches, dings, extensive finish checking, and faded marks from long-lost stickers, tells a tale of a life well-lived.
What sets this Flying V apart is the scalloped fingerboard, a modification that adds a unique touch to the neck, offering a thinner profile and an extraordinary playing experience. If you haven't experienced a scalloped fingerboard, you're in for a treat — it's a distinctive feature known for its comfort and playability.
While the bridge pickup, pickguard, and nut have been replaced, the guitar retains its original spirit. The Seymour Duncan Invader high-output pickup now gracing the bridge complements the original 500T pickup, although the latter is absent. Despite these alterations, the guitar remains free of cracks or structural issues, with a straight neck and original frets showing minimal wear.
Rated a solid 7 out of 10, this '67 Reissue embodies the essence of a vintage rock machine. The comprehensive photos provided give you an up-close look at its unique character and modifications. This 1997 Gibson Flying V ‘67 Reissue is more than an instrument; it's a piece of rock history waiting for the next chapter in its story.
